Cleaning products and tools (like mops and brooms) often take up a frustrating amount of space and can be hard to organize. Storing your cleaning products properly can make cleaning your home easier and more efficient. While there are many things you can do to keep your cleaning products organized, below are some tricks and tips we think are most effective.

Make a Dedicated Utility Closet

Keep all your cleaning supplies in one place, either in a custom closet made just for cleaning products or in a repurposed closet or cabinet somewhere in your home. Put all cleaning supplies in this one location, including vacuum cleaners, mops, brooms, and more. Install a broom holder on the wall of your utility closet to keep brooms from falling down and getting in the way.

Other items you can store in your utility closet include:

  • Bottles of spray cleaners
  • Sponges
  • Paper towels
  • Rags
  • Empty spray bottles
  • Scrub brushes
  • Melamine sponges

Create a Cleaning Caddy

Make a cleaning caddy that you can bring with you when you’re cleaning various rooms, like the kitchen or bathroom. Cleaning caddies are available for sale in home improvement stores and online, or you can use an old shower caddy.

Store the caddy in the closet for easy access when it’s time to clean a bathroom or kitchen. You might even create multiple caddies – one for each type of room.

Use a Lazy Susan

Having a hard time accessing all those bottles of cleaning products? Use a large lazy Susan to make reaching your cleaning supplies easier. If your closet has free space for a tension rod, consider installing a rod where you can hang bottles for easy reaching. Both of these ideas – a tension rod and a lazy Susan – also work under your kitchen or bathroom sink.

Utilize a Shoe Organizer

Put all your backup cleaners and accessories in a shoe organizer – either a shoe organizer that sits on the floor, or on a shoe organizer that fits over the door of your utility closet.
